I got to play this course three times in one weekend and I never got bored. Best of all, I thought every hole was memorable and unique, the greens were perfect and you hardly saw another group. Pretty much a perfect experience. Loved the elevated tees and doglegs and the sixth hole is one of the best short par 4s you'll ever play. If you have a chance to play any of the courses at Champions Retreat, jump on it. The only nearby experience that might be better is on Magnolia Lane.

These 9 holes are quite different than the other two nine holes. Players navigate through the lower areas of the course with creeks often in play. Local knowledge is most helpful.

On the second par 3, don't even look at the green. Aim right of the hole and thank me later.

We loved Champions Retreat and can't wait to go back! Each of the 3 nines has it's own character and challenges. The course was in immaculate condition, and has beautiful views! The staff was probably the most friendly and welcoming golf staff I have ever encountered- the head pro, golf shop staff, restaurant employees, the membership and lodging folks- all first rate! If you can stay the night, the cottages are amazing as well!!

This is a truly unique property, and after visiting you'll wonder why there aren't more like it. We only stayed for two rounds and one night, but it was a fantastic destination for a guys golf trip. Top-notch service and immaculate, luxurious, and super-convenient lodging. Riding the golf cart between the cottage, the clubhouse, and the pub is perfection. Thanks guys!

3 nines, designed by Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. Not much more needs to be said after that. Each one has it's own distinctive Features and will challenge even the best of golfers. Although with 4 different teeing grounds, moving up makes the course rather enjoyable. So challenge your game today and go and play the Retreat, an experience you will never forget.
